The bad news are that the overwhelming majority of the Israelis support it - including the
centrists and even the Zionist left (who claim they want "two states" solution but with
impossible pre conditions). The good news are that the imperial powers whose support to
the status qua are gradually yielding to public opinions pressure of their citizens who do
not agree with the Israeli apartheid-transferor regime. The non armed joint struggle
initiated wide attention and drew participants from all over the world with international
movement dedicated to put end to the Israeli occupation. (A short video about two kids in
Bil'in got in few days two million views.). The anarchists against the wall and other like
minded among the palestinians and abroad still struggle for the end of the Zionist settler
colonialist/transferor project and not just for the end of 1967 occupation.
Friday, 25-12-15, Last demo in 2015 in Bil'in. 4 members of the anarchist-communist
organization Ahdut (Unity) joined 10 activists of the anarchists against the wall
initiative and 3 internationals with the local activists.
The Israeli state force were few and less belligerent than usual, They "allowed" us to
approach the old route of the separation fence and even to photograph the form declaring
the location as closed military zone. The wind was friendly and the state force were not
"generous" with the tear gas grenade. After about an hour the state force went away and
the demo ended.
Friday 8-1-16, 11 Israelis with the anarchists against the wall initiative and the
anarcho-communist Ahdut (Unity) joined international activists and the villagers in the
weekly demo. Just as we started marching down the hill the Israeli state forces started to
shower us with tear gas and sponge coated bullets. After about 30 minutes of confrontation
the state force went away and we declared another victory.
The video https://www.facebook.com/LiberatedDreams/videos/1080129055372928/ was filmed in
Bil'in-Palestine and is dedicated to the soul of the martyr Oudai Jaber (was killed 1st of
August 2014) by the occupying forces during a demonstration in Ramalla in support of Gaza)
and to all the children of Palestine.

Thanks to all the friends who called to check if I was at the shooting in tlv today!
In fact I was at a mass shooting, happy to escape unharmed, today and many days in the
past. But it was in a civil protest for solidarity freedom and equality of Palestinians,
and the shooters wore uniform. So hardly anybody cares....
Sunday 10-1-16, Anarchists of Ahdut (Unity) participated in vigil of solidarity with the
refusnic Tair Kaminer. After the vigil she entered the recruitment compound and was jailed
for 20 days for refusing military service.

On Saturday, 12th December, 2015, a shepherd from Umm Jamal, in the northern West Bank
Jordan Valley, herded his flock a few kilometres from the settlement Maskiot. Settlers
were hiking in the area with three dogs; one of the dogs attacked the shepherd, biting him
in the leg. The shepherd required medical treatment.

On Wednesday, 23rd December, 2015, IDF soldiers came to the Palestinian village Khirbet
Umm El-Jamal, near El-Maleh, in the Jordan Valley, and demolished a sheepfold that had
been built by one of the residents so his sheep were protected against the rain and cold.
They warned him not to dare to rebuild it.
On Thursday, 24th December, 2015, government representatives escorted by police came to
demolish El'Araqib, yet again.

Confiscation of land in the West Bank or its declaration as state land is a lengthy
procedure. Seldom do we learn about these activities as they are happening in real time.
I regard land confiscation and its declaration as state land to be a matter of special
importance, for the simple reason that these are “legal” means to get the Palestinians’
feet off the land. Driving Palestinians from their land is at the heart of the conflict.
On 30th December, 2015, Palestinians reported the confiscation of 300 dunums (dunum=1000
sq.m) of land belonging to the Palestinian village Fasayil, in the Jordan Valley. To the
best of our knowledge, the land was proclaimed state land in 1999, and is situated just
over a kilometre north of the settlement Yafit. During the past year, settlers planted
palm trees there and established a plant nursery, using about 250 dunums.

On 22nd December, 2015, the IDF started carrying out earthworks on the lands of Shufa,
next to the military base near Avnei Hefetz settlement. The Palestinian landowners were
given no prior notice as to the incursion onto their land. It is worth noting that the
settlement Avnei Hefetz was established in 1987 on 44 dunums. Today it spreads across
some 3,000 dunums, expropriated from local Palestinian villages (dunum=1000 sq.m). The
Palestinian landowners whose land borders the settlement are only permitted limited access
to their land.
On Wednesday, government representatives, under police escort, went to the Bedouin village
Rakhme, next to Yeruham, and demolished a mosque.
